What kind of checks can Google have in the Play store, considering that apps appear minutes after uploading them?

Or what kind of checks can Apple have for that matter, considering they don't get the source and don't even run the apps? (I've never had things phone home during the "review", even when all functionality is behind a login screen or the sole purpose of the app is to send something to the mothership)
